As a female leader who has seen first-hand how diversity and inclusion drive success, I couldn’t be more delighted that Criteria Corp has been recognized as one of #GirlsClub’s Top 25 Companies Where Women Want to Work again this year.”
96% of voters said that KnowBe4 offers ongoing professional development training.

We look forward to continuing to support the mission of #GirlsClub for the future of female leaders at KnowBe4 and those interested in our female-led initiatives around the world.”
95% of voters said that ModMed offers ongoing professional development training.
“At ModMed, we’re committed to building up our community and fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion. Our employees are diverse and bring their unique voices, passions and experiences with them to help improve healthcare. As Chief People Officer at ModMed, it is my mission to ensure that we encourage and support our employees to continue to create and nurture diversity and affinity groups that provide personal and professional growth opportunities, such as mmWIT (ModMed Women in Innovation and Technology). mmWIT serves as part of our commitment to further developing and advancing female talent.

93% of voters said that Fivetran is focused on hiring more women and promoting them.
“Diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging is a crucial part of our culture at Fivetran. This recognition is a testament to the global investments that our leadership team has made in our Fivetran Women+ employee resource group, our Women’s Leadership Initiative, and our Women’s Mentorship Program. All of these programs focus on the development and growth of women at Fivetran. We strive to continue hiring, retaining, and developing top female talent at all levels of the organization.

93% of voters said that Intuit promotes equal pay for women and equality in the workplace.
90% of voters said that Iterable is leading the charge on diversity and inclusion efforts.
“In a male-dominated industry, like tech, where innovation and iteration are currency, the value of DE&I is explicit. And the best thing an organization can do to drive DE&I — and keep competitive — is embrace empathy. Once leaders prioritize listening, and seek a deeper understanding from people of different backgrounds, they will understand how to design an organization that supports diverse individuals. Feedback and people-first: that’s how we operate at Iterable. Flexible work modes, geoneutral pay, flexible PTO, paid bereavement, adoption and fertility assistance and mentorship program; we design programs, perks and processes that are built by women, for women. Only when a workplace is designed to support a diverse workforce will it attract one. And, as we know, a more equitable future — one of equal opportunity for people of every race, color, sexual orientation, gender and ability — is a more profitable one.”
96% of voters said that LogicMonitor’s executive team is intentional about increasing female leadership.
93% of voters said that Docebo offers
flexible work schedules and work-life balance.
“At Docebo, we believe that a more diverse team is a more effective and innovative team, and our #GirlsClub partnership is just one of many ways we support women-identifying Docebians throughout the year. Their Sales Leadership Training Program has been invaluable in advancing the careers of women in sales roles at Docebo, and we are proud to say that we’ve seen a 216% increase in women-identifying employees in Manager roles or above across the entire organization this year alone.
#GirlsClub aligns well with our core value of togetherness and our culture of inclusion, collaboration, high performance, and opportunity. We are honored to be recognized as one of their Top 25 Companies Where Women Want to Work.””
92% of voters said that Ambition offers flexible work schedules and work-life balance.
“Ambition is focused on ensuring that women are supported in all levels of their career journey. This year we added a Women in Tech community group focused on professional and personal development. We have a hiring focus on diversity and recruiting from non-traditional backgrounds. Ambition invests in continuing education funds for employees, offers career development and mentorship programs for role changes and internal growth, and provides generous parental leave and back-to-work support for new mothers.

For us this is not just something that lives in a corporate deck or on a wall, it’s something we’re committed to and continue to make progress on daily. We are passionate about supporting all our women at Planful and ensuring they feel supported and set up for success. That passion takes many forms; from our fully paid leave when welcoming a new family member, to our Women of Planful group that creates a space to share ideas and experiences and our partnerships with Vivvi to support parents while traveling for work with meals, childcare and petcare support. Behind every successful woman there is a tribe of successful women who have her back. We are so grateful to be inspired by the women on our team each and every day.”

“At ALT, we have made efforts to diversify our team since the beginning. Our CEO intentionally diversified the executive team, which comprises over 50% women. We are especially proud of doing this in our industry which, at the intersection of sports, tech and finance, traditionally struggles to maintain equal gender representation.
While we are thrilled to be nominated this year, we have a ways to go to make ALT an even better place for women to work. We are ready to roll our sleeves up and get to work with the support of the #GirlsClub community.”

100% of voters said that RocketReach offers flexible work schedules and work-life balance.
“As a queer, female People leader, I prioritize creating an environment full of different backgrounds, ways of thinking, and most importantly a place where people can be themselves. Hiring with inclusivity and our no-asshole policy has been our North Star here at RocketReach. Creating a safe space for people to have a voice and a seat at the table, is paramount. We have grown from 15 to 90 employees in the past two years and as we’ve scaled, we’ve made an intentional effort to build a diverse culture with good humans. Our differences make up the fabric of the business and drive a lot of what our team refers to as “the best place I’ve ever worked”.

As a globally distributed company we are lucky to have a team that comprises incredible women from many different cultural backgrounds; it is the diversity of these voices and experience that have helped us to become the successful company that we are today. I’m honoured to work with so many talented women from such diverse locations and cultures.
We support women by having an outcome-focused flexible working environment where we focus on impact rather than clocking on to a 9-5. This flexible approach enables everyone, regardless of gender, to create balance between work and the rest of their lives. Our professional development support helps women to grow as strategic partners and technical experts to our enterprise clients. And we have broad ranging family-friendly policies such as extended parental leave and carers leave, a focus on pay equity, and a working environment that is supportive and understanding of the demands of having a family alongside having a job.”

We’re incredibly proud to have a highly diverse workforce that permeates all levels and segments of our organization, and we know that this is not by accident. We have thoughtful business policies in place to remove forms of bias from our interviewing and evaluation processes, we have a non-negotiation policy to remove systemic inequities from our compensation packages, and we have flexible policies to encourage the likes of working parents such as myself who aspire to be leaders to build wonderful careers with FreeWill.
